Chatham Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people to create self-help opportunities for families to own affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen their communities.

Habitat for Humanity houses around the world is built according to the same guiding principles. All Habitat for Humanity affiliates share a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Simple

Habitat houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum. On average, houses built with Chatham Habitat are between 1056 to 1,100 sq. feet

Decent

Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. All of our homes meet or exceed N.C. Building Code requirements.

Affordable

The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes, and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses. The average cost to build a Chatham Habitat house is $76,000, and monthly payments are between $460 to $595 per month, including mortgage, taxes, Homeowner’s Association dues, insurance, and an annual termite inspection.

Energy Efficient

Habitat is committed to resource- and energy-efficient building practices with the goal of conserving natural resources and reducing monthly heating and cooling costs for homeowners. The homes we build are certified by Advanced Energy’s SystemVision program, by the EPA’s Energy Star Program, and by Duke Energy Progress’ Residential New Construction Program, based on the High-Efficiency Residential Option (HERO) code.  Some homes have also been certified to the National Association of Home Builder’s National Green Building Standard (Bronze or Silver).

At Chatham Habitat, we also build communities. This reduces the cost of land purchase and infrastructure and helps keep our homes affordable.

We’re proud to say that safety is our top priority on job sites, in the ReStores, and at all CHFH Special Events. If you’re interested in the details of our Health & Safety Manual, click here to read the full (92 pages!) document.
